Local Music Centres and Schools
'Music is often an expensive hobby and so many people therefore sadly never get the chance to learn an instrument. Some did not get the chance when they were young and others may have found it difficult to keep going with their instrument after leaving school when tutors can be so expensive. Here at the BCMA, we believe that everyone should get the opportunity to pick up an instrument and have that chance to create music. Whatever your age, wherever you come from and whatever your circumstances; music brings people together. Everyone is welcome here!'
